A century-old company
Tissage Art de Lys is the guarantee of exceptional expertise inherited from the Middle Ages and unanimously acclaimed in France and abroad. In particular, this expertise has enabled Tissage Art de Lys to be certified as an “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (Living Heritage Company).
Created in 1890 by Jean Deffrennes-Canet and Edouard Catrice, the company started life as a workshop specialising in the manufacture of tapestries, rugs, velvet rugs and prayer mats. In 1983, it became Tissage Art de Lys, and began concentrating on decorative tapestries.
Today, the Tissage Art de Lys Company offers upmarket, decorative textile accessories (cushions, draught excluders, cosmetic bags, bell-pulls, bed and table runners, etc.), blending tradition and modernity.
